Join the Vanguard revolution! If you've already been "Amped" then you'll know the benefit that the innovative double-thickness core brings to your game in terms of stability, power and control. With their new Vanguard range Selkirk have taken this technology to a whole new level!

The VANGUARD Hybrid Invikta Paddle is ideal for full court coverage and expansive reach thanks to its elongated shape. The Invikta shaped design developed its reputation as a paddle for players who like some extra power due to it's slightly head-biased weighting, and it's longer handle, allowing players to strike the ball slightly further away from their body. This allows you to generate a larger swing arc, and hence higher impact speeds.

This new VANGUARD Hybrid Series paddle takes advantage of a series of technological improvements: a new grip, a new edge guard and double layered carbon fibre (graphite) face. The "geo grip" is highly cushioned and has a high level of moisture absorption and tack and was launched specifically for the VANGUARD line. The QuadCarbon fibre surface uses two layers of woven carbon fibre on each side of the paddle, a total of four layers, to create consistent play and exceptional durability. Players describe the sweet spot changes from the new face material as "amazing", and "transformative" giving the VANGUARD Hybrid Invikta a sweet spot that is much larger, coming further down the face than ever before. This gives you the extra reach and power the Inviktas are known for, with more defensive blocking capability and ball working control when striking the ball closer to the handle. The edge guard is light weight with a slender profile so it keeps your paddle safe but helps minimize mis-hits.

The VANGUARD Hybrid Invikta Paddle comes in a light weight range at 7.7 - 7.9 oz and a midweight 7.9 - 8.2 oz. It uses the thick X5 polymer core to create a soft, dampened feel that improves dinks and controlled shots like thirds, while still maintaining power for put-away shots. It also has the trademark Selkirk beautiful design in black and white. There is also the choice of a matching Vanguard paddle cover for £10 extra (usual price £20)

The VANGUARD Hybrid Invikta Paddle is for players who want to be able to do it all with ease, comfort and speed.

Important note about the Vanguard Paddle paint finish: There are reports of quick wear of the paint finish on these paddles. This is normal and does not affect the performance of the paddle. For the VANGUARD to achieve another level of performance, Selkirk hand-selected a natural carbon fiber weave. With this high-performance QuadCarbon technology, you may notice minor markings in the graphics on the face, just as fingerprints have unique markings. These minor markings do not affect performance in any way. They did test other carbon fiber weaves that don’t have these minor face markings but their level of performance proved inferior to the QuadCarbon technology. Since top performance matters most to the pickleball community, Selkirk chose to use the technology with the highest level of performance.  Selkirk ask you to understand that the quick wear of the paint finish on these paddles is normal and is not considered a defect in the product and is therefore is not covered by their manufacturer's guarantee.
